The brief: Astral Food, a poultry farming company, were relocating their offices to a more urban environment in order to increase their brand awareness and accessibility.

The challenge: We needed to design an intimate, home-away-from-home space for two full-time employees in a rather large 220 square metre area. We also needed to add a shower facility, a fully functioning kitchen and a lounge with enough flexible space to hold meetings and large events.

The solution: We knew the design had to have a more corporate feel but at the same time we couldn’t afford to lose the brand’s warm, quirky personality. The answer was to juxtapose old and new, farm and city, rural and urban. Textured elements added contrast, while a rich yolk-yellow was the perfect accent to brighten the space, allowing it to evolve into a warm and playful space.
